Although reports have been submitted to the
Department on all citizens councils concerning which
we have conducted investigations and inquiries to date,
the Department has indicated the activities of these
organizations do not fall within the purview of Executive
Order 10450* In view of this fact, there is no basis
upon which to base justification for further inquiry.
Therefore, you are instructed to immediately discontinue
inquiries concerning all citizens councils upon receipt
of this letter. It is your responsibility to also
immediately notify auxiliary offices of the discontinuance
of the investigation.
In order that the Bureau may continue to carry
out its responsibilities of keeping interested Government
agencies informed of information of interest to them, you
must continue your efforts to keep abreast of developments
in order that the Bureau may be apprised of any situation
which indicates a potential for violence. In obtaining
information, however, absolutely no inquiries are to be
made by you. You must secure the desired information
through close scrutiny of the public press plus whatever
information may be volunteered to you.

Letter to SAC, Atlanta
Re; CITIZENS COUNCILS
With respect to the use of confidential
informants, I want it clearly understood that no
informant is to be given any assignment in connection
with obtaining information regarding the activities of
citizens councils without prior Bureau authority. If
you have a confidential informant already reporting on
citizens councils matters you may continue to accept
information volunteered by the informant but you must
not give him any additional assignments in this field.
If you feel it is necessary for some specific reason to
continue an informant in a particular citizens council
you must immediately advise the Bureau, together with
the identity of the informant, his reliability and your
assurance that continued operation of the informant will
not result in any embarrassment to the Bureau*
Each office receiving copies of this letter
must submit to the Bureau a monthly summary of information
concerning the activities of citizens councils in your
respective territories. The first such letter is to be
submitted to reach the Bureau by January 15 ^ 1957, and
each succeeding letter must be submitted to reach the
Bureau by the fifteenth of each month. This summary,
which shall consist of an original and seven copies,
must be submitted in memorandum form suitable for dissemi-
nation and forwarded to the Bureau by cover letter. These
sximmary memoranda and your cover letter must bear the
caption "Citizens Councils, (name of field office)".
Each of these siimmary memoranda must also be dated.
As in the past, information received concerning
citizens councils which requires expeditious handling
must not be delayed for inclusion in the monthly summary
but must be furnished to the Bureau promptly by whatever
means of communication is required by the nature of the
Letter to SAC, Atlanta
Reg CITIZEi'JS COUNCILS
This matter must receive your personal attention
and it is your responsibility^ insofar as is possible,
to see to it that the Bureau -will continue to be in a
position to furnish pertinent information concerning
potential violence to interested Government agencies.
With respect to the administrative handling of
current cases, you should submit a closing report "within
30 days from the aate of this letter. This report should
incorporate any information which has been obtained to
date not previously reported. If there is very little
information to be reported, you may at your discretion sub
mit a closing letter. On the administrative page of the
closing report or in the closing letter make reference to
this letter in order that the administrative handling at
the Seat of Government may be facilitated ,
The fact that we are discontinuing our inquiries
concerning citizens councils is not to be discussed or
made known in any manner to anyone outside your own office
This includes your confidential informants.

Rebulet to Atlanta dated 10-9-57.
My letter 3-15-57, Instant caption, reflects that no
organization which falls within the category of citizens
councils has ever existed In the territory of this division
and no subsequent change In this connection has been noted.
The principal focal point of pro-segregation
activity In this territory continues to be the National i
Citizens Protective Association, Inc. (NCPA) , IS - X (Buflle °
105-16510), whose headquarters are located In St. Louis, .
which, according to Bulets to St. Louis 12-8-55 and 2-3-56 *
both captioned "Citizens Councils and States ' Rights Movements/
IS - X", was construed as not falling within this category. |
Closing report dated 7-26-57 was submitted In this Investigate
per Bulet 6-3-57 "National Citizens Protective Association, |
IS - X" In view of decision by Department that activities of
NCPA were not such as to bring It within purview of EO 10450.
In passing, as a matter of general Information, the
only other anti-negro "organization" currently existing In thM^
territory is "-Pbp Ci hi ?:pn.ct ■ rinunp.n nf the Mid-West" .

Attention Teen-Agers and Parents: Todsiy,
more than ever before, the youth of America
is being flooded with integrationlst propa-
ganda. This integrationlst propaganda they
receive through various Institutions, such
as schools and newspapers, is all the In-
formation that many receive on the subject.
So, naturally, many of the youths of today
are taking this race-mixing propaganda at
face value and, especially in the Northern
States, are becoming integrationists.
We feel -that something should be done
about it by the youth themselves. A group
of teen-agers In St. Louis, Missouri, has
formed the Missouri White Youth Council
and we hope that eventually all patriotic
White teen-agers in the United States will
join. We plan to give the youth of America
the other side of the story so they can see
how they were misled by the Communists
and the do-gooders.
The Youth Council plans to help lead the
youth of America out of the maze of in-
tegral ionist propaganda and into the way of
God, the way of segregation. If you know of,
or if you are a White teen-ager between the
ages of 14 and 20, and are interested in
joining or forming a White Youth Council,

apolis, S/ar,. the Minnesota Friends of
Koinonia asked churches to set up booths
at which parishioners could buy pecans.
Using the slogan “Build Good Will," (see
picture on page 5), Minnesota churches have
sold about 9,000 tons of Koinonia's pecan
meats. Instead of “building good will," the
money raised by the churches will be
to build more hatred, dissension and vio-
lence to feed the flames of the War against
the White South. If the “liberal'’ church
people of Minnesota believe so strong^' in
Communist-inspired integration in Georgia,
they should be willing to practice it them-
selves. Since the last census reported only
14,000 negroes in the entire State, Minne-
sota’s ardent Integrationists should Invite
their “colored brothers" to move to Minne-
sota instead of paying for attempted race-
mixing in Georgia.

URBAN LEAGUE-NAACP DICTATE TO U. S. CHARGES SENATOR
The Urban League and the NAACP are dictating the hiring
policies of the Federal Government* Sen. J. Strom Thurmond
charged in an open letter to Tricky Dicky Nixon, head of
Eisenhower*s Committee on Government Contracts. Not only
are negroes replacing more and more White workers employed
directly by the Federal Government, but Ike's Committee was
farcp all companies and unions doing busi-
ness with the Government to hire and promote more and more
negroes at the expense of the White workers. This is called
"Fair (sic) Employment Practices" (FEPC).
Vice President Nixon, right, poses with Carl Murphy, head of
the Afro- American Newspapers; James M. Nabrit, secretary
of Howard (negro) University and Max Rabinovitz, (who now
calls himself "Rabb"), at an equal job opportunities con-
ference sponsored by the President's Committee on Govern-
ment Contracts held at the Willard Hotel in Washington.
Rabinovitz is the Anti-Defamation League agent in the White
Nixon Threatens Private Business
Employers with Government contracts are forced to hire
negroes provided by the Urban League instead of Whites by
threats from Tricky Dicky Nixon that their contracts will be
cancelled unless they allow the Urban League to dictate
their hiring and promotion policies. Sen. Thurmond said he-
was against any program for forcing the hiring of negroes
instead of Whites and that he was "bitterly opposed to hav-
ing any group which is outside the Government dictate
policy to the Government or any of its agencies."
The Senator also charged that Eisenhower's Committee on
Government Contracts "is attempting to force unwanted em-

ployment relationships and is permitting both
the Urban League and the NAACP to dictate
policy to Government agencies and employers
concerned." Elsenhower's Committee and Its
anti-White, discriminatory policies were not
authorized or established by Congress. They
are the -result of an Executive Decree made
by Eisenhower to bribe negroes into the
Republican Party. Taking White men's jobs
away and giving them to negroes is one of
the schemes thought up by the Palace Guard,
Nixon and Knowlond to cajole negroes into
the Republicem Party.
For seven years, the National Citizens Pro-
tective Association and its publications have
exposed the Urban League for intimidating
employers to hire negroes instead of Whites.
Sen. Thurmond's charges, as well as the
documented charges made against the Urban
League in V. S. News & World Report, should
much to cause Chests and Funds to stop
luppcffting the Urban League. Business and
-.mlons who we being coerced and intimidated
by the Urban League should cease contribu-
ting to any Community Chest or United Fund
as long as it subsidizes the Urban League.
How the President’s Committee on Govern-
ment Contracts Works
For displeasing the Committee in the num-
ber of negroes hired, fired, promoted or d(^-
moted, a company's Government contracts
can be cancelled and no new Government
business given to it. U. $. News & World
Report carried a four page atricle on how ihe
Committee works, excerpts of which follow:
Ru/es for emp/oyers. Conti actors c an-

origin in their “help wan tern!” advertise-

Front-office jobs, apprenticeships and

open to Negroes on an equal basis with
whites. There is to be no discrimination

‘*New Korea” because of their high crime rate. The Globe-
Oemocrcn stated: "Press clippings from every public housing
city in the country show concern over the increase of problem
lamilies, vandalism, juvenile delinquency, adult crime and
filth in the projects” and added: "Some families have to be
taught to use bath rooms, others not to heave garbage out of
the windows. Still others must be shown - under threat of
eviction - how to use a mop and broom and the value of dis-
infectant." Another reason Whites leave when a project be-
comes integrated is that they object to negro couples carry-
ing on sexual activities in halls, elevators, stairways, base-

cx x>ui a federal Court ordered them integrated
basing its decision on the Supreme Court's Black Monday
ruling. The 3 all-negro projects are still all-negi'o. Four are
integrated and only one remains White. One of the integrated
projects is 98.2% negroid. The others are getting as bad.
The Detroit Free Press said: "Detroit faces the distinct
possibility that its public housing may become almost en-
tirely for negroes.
Negro housing in negro districts is one thing, but integrated
housing in White districts is another. Before the land was
cleared for the Edward J. Jefferies Project in Detroit, the
area was White. Now the project itself is almost all negro
and the blacks are spreading like a cancerous growth through
out the entire area. Another victory for "integration,” In
Detroit, 53% of public housing tenants are negroes although
the City's negro population is only 19%. But they are not
satisfied and are accusing the Housing Commission of "dis-
crimination" in the selection of tenants.
Southern Projects Now Threatened
Projects in the North are not yet completely negroized. but

asking that the court order its projects to be integrated, Th)
NAACP has threatened the Houston, Texas, Housing Author-
ity with court action unless it willingly integrates. This is
only the beginning.
St. Louis County Fights Public Housing
Threatened with a public housing project at Jefferson
Barracks in alTWhite South St. Louis County, the people
acted. First a suit was filed asking plans for the project be
halted. Failing in this, the County Council was asked to halt
all operations. Defeated by a 3 to 2 vote, petitions were
circulated to bring the question to a vote. In a short time
nearly 21,000 signatures of registered voters were obtained
and aTeferendum will be placed on the ballot next fall to
abolish the St. Louis County Housing Authority altogether.
If this proposal passes, there will be no public housing pro-
jects built in St. Louis County. Unfortunately, the City of
St. Louis has no connection with the County. Similar action
Should be undertaken here to prevent the erection of any
additional public housing.
Public Housing a Failure
Mayor Robert Wagner released an extensive six-month study
of public housing in New York City. The study revealed:
"Serious deterioration of the porjects; an enormous backlog
of maintenance work to be done; too many undesirable fami-
lies making for a hard core of problem tenants who cause
serious trouble for their neighbors and the authority.” It
concluded: "The City’s public housing projects bear many
strong resemblances to the slums they were supposed to
Write your Senators and Congressmen today to vote against
any additional funds for public housing. Stop this harmful
waste of the taxpayers' money.
One reason negroes clamor for more and more cheap Govern-
ment housing is the filth in which many of them live, such
as the picture from Harlem shown above. They ignore the
fact that houses don't turn themselves into slums - people do.
Houses don't make the filth which litters negro slum areas -
people do. Until City Health and Building Inspectors enforce
the laws and courts begin handing down stiff penalties for
violations, they will continue to turn their areas into slums.
Then tliey demand White taxpayers build them new homes.
The Rev, Milton Galamison, nepo President of the Brooklyn
NAACP, goes over plans to racially integrate more New York
schools with Mrs. Annie Stein, Education Chairman of the
branch. Mrs. Stein is not a negro. Neither does she have
children going to school. Her husband is Arthur Stein, who
is not only a 5th Amendment Communist, but who has been
accused by the House Committee on Cn-American Activities
with being a recuiting agent for the Communist Party.
13 Year Old White Girl Raped by negro
in Basement of Integrated School
The rape of a 13 year old White girl in the basement of a
New York junior high school by a 15 year old negro, a fellow
student, not only was sent out over the AP wires on Jan. 23,
but brought renewed demands for the protection of children
(especially White children) in New York City’s foul, racially
integrated schools. School Supt., Jansen replied that there
had been a uniformed policeman on duty in the school at the
time the child was raped, but that ''he can’t be everywhere
at once.” This brutal negro attack on a young White girl is
just one of thousands of crimes committed by negroes against .
Whites each year in the cesspools that New York’s integrated
public schools have become.
School Pregnancies In Alarming Climb
In the first 2 months of school last fall, 1,250 pregnant,
unwed girls 15 or under were dismissed from New York’s
public schools. This is an alarming increase over other years.
When asked for comment by the New York Daily News. School
Supt., Jansen became furious that the information had leaked
out and not only refused to discuss it but also ordered his
staff members to ke^p mum. Naturally, it was not revealed
how many of the 1,250 young girls were White or the race of
the fathers, if the figures included girls 16, 17 and 18, the
figure would be much higher.
Grand* Jury Investigation
Last November, Judge Samuel Liebowitz ordered a Grand
Jury Investigation of lawlessness and terrorism in New
York’s integrated schools. He also ordered an invesiigHU.in
of why principals and teachers "clam up" about school crimes
when police ask questions. The Judge charged the Grand
Jury: "I call upon you to find out and^tell us how many hold-
ups, intimidations and extortions have occured on public
school premises: how many of these cases ever saw the light
of day. HoW many young girls have been attacked on stairs
by young degenerates: classes disrupted by hoodlums,
school rooms and offices invaded by vandals who have made
them shambles. Find out what is done to make the hoodlums
check their artillery outside before coming to school."
After a thorough investigation, the Grand Jury recommended
uniformed policemen be assigned to all schools to patrol the
corridors, the stairways and the recreation yards to "safe- /
guard pupils and teachers from vicious elements and shock-/
ing incidents." It released crime figures (suppressed by the/
Board of Education) showing 1,280 arrests, 2,152 complaints
of crimes and 2,572 cases of delinquency referred to the
Juvenile Aid Bureau. All these arrests, crimes and deliii-/
quencies took place in or near New York’s integrated schools
during the first 10 months of 1957. Crimes actually committe(j
on school grounds included murders, rapes, felonious as/. ^
saults, narcotics, sodomies, burglaries and dangerous
Integrated Schools Cause The Trouble
New York's integrated schools have long been referred to
as "blackboard jungles." With the increase of negroes and
Puerto Rican negroes pouring into the City, has come a tre-
mendous increase of crime and terror in the public schools.
Some 907c of Puerto Ricans have negroid blood. The troubles
now increasingly plaguing New York’s schools come from the
integrated schools, not from those which are still largely
segregated by virtue of being in White neighborhoods. School
officials speak vaguely of "difficult schools," but fail to
state that these "difficult schools" are either in all-negro-
Puerto Rican or integrated districts and that they comprise
about 25% of all elementary schools and nearly 33% of the
junior high schools, not to mention High schools. The Board
of Education suggests a dual system of education by estab-
lishing a network of new schools and segregating the prob-
lem students in these schools.

RACE-MIXERS WANT MORE INTEGRATION
The evil effects of pabllc school Integretloa ' '
dent in New York do not phase the mongrellzers kSo
demand more and more mixing. Under the inceswftt
prodding of the highly organized racial minority groups,
led by the Urban League, the NAACP and their allies in-
cluding the Communist Party, several schemes have been
hatched to integrate every public school in New York City.
The first scheme demanded by the Urban League and the
NAACP was to transport negroes by bus and elevated trains
many miles each day from their homes to all-White schools
in different sections of the City. Whites were to be compelled
to go to school in Harlem and other negro districts miles
from their homes. That this is harmful to the children, both
White and black, Is obvious, but race-mixers don't care about
the children - they just want them integrated. Some 5,000
negroes are now attending 60 formerly all-White schools in
ofHor spctlons of the City. Many of them have to travel 8 and
. j tmies each way in order for the privilege of getting in-
tegrated with Whites. The Board of Education has refused
to release any information on the number of White children
forced to travel to Harlem each day.
To justify this outrageous procedure, the Rev. Galamison
(pictured on opposite page) said: ** Wholesome normal con-
tact between the races is needed to destroy prejudices."
What dhes he mean by "wholesome normal contacts" be-
tween White girls and negro boys? He adds: "It seems to be
a major concern of the anti-integrationists that if people
have these ‘contacts' they may 'overcome these prejudices.
They almost seem to be afraid that their children will get to
like (or be like) negroes."
Valerie Haw^kins, Education Director for the Urban League,
strongly supported the carting of children all over the City
each day. "When Whites force segregation through housing,
it has the effect of stereotyping negro students as inferior.
It is part of this stereotype that negro children have lower
IQs and aren't good students," she said. Negro leaders real-
ize negroes are inferior to Whites and hope by mixing in
schools some of the Whites' intelligence, culture, behavior
and morals will rub off on the blacks. They are not interested
in the harm it does the White children.
$15 000 000 Needed To Integrate
Huiung utgrues in every White school in New York City
and Whites in every negro school costs money. Appearing
before the Board of Education, Edward S. Lewis, mulatto
Executive Director of the Urban League of Greater New York,
asked for an appropriation of 15,000,000 to "provide equal
educational opportunities for our City’s minority children^
who have been educationally starved for decades." The
additional money is needed to "implement the Board of Edu-
cation's program for racially integrating the City's schools,"
he said. At the same time, the Urban League claims that
school integration will "save money."
Valerie Hawkins. Education Director for the Urban
League of Greater New York, leads the fight against
all-White neighborhoods, charging they foster segrega-
ted schools. The Urban League in New York, as in 56
other cities, is supported by "charity" funds.
League Convention then unanimously voted to begin an "ag-
gressive campaign" to put negroes into WhUe neighborhoods
and housing projects. All this was done with the "charity"
money the League receives from 57 Chests and Funds around
the country, including New York City.
LANDLORDS DENIED RIGHT
TO CHOOSE TENANTS
The Urban League joined forces with the NAACP and other
racial, communistic and church groups to pass a law in New
York City making it illegal for a landlord to chose his own
tenants. The law covers all privately owned housing in the
City except 1 and 2 family houses. To move into .a White
residential area, all a negro has to do is find a vacancy and
move in. N^w York .still has City rent control so the landlord
can't charge the negro any more than the previous White
tenant paid. If, for any reason, the landlord refuses to rent
to the negro, New York's Corporation Counsel can haul the
landlord Into court in the name of the City. With this law,
the Urban League hopes to put a negro in every block of the
When there are no longer any White neighborhoods, there
will no longer be any segregated schools. Mayor Wagner has
signed this bill, called New York*s Answer to Little Rock,
and it goes into effect April 1st.
"NEW YORK’S ANSWER TO LITTLE ROCK”
It is generally agreed that in spite of transporting school
children all over the City, New York's schools could not be
completely integrated as long as White neighborhoods re-
mained. So. the mongrelizers got busy to destroy every White
neighborhood in New York. Speaking at the Urban League’s
National Convention in 1955. its then President Robert
Dowling declared: "Racial integration in schools would be
worthless unless neighborhoods are mixed." The Urban

"JIM CROW" IS ON WAY
OUT SAYS SUMMERFIELD
Addressing the negro Elks, Postmaster General Summerfield
said that 'Jim Crow’ and discrimination of negroes is being
carefully and permanently eliminated from the Post Office
Department. He revealed that in 1956 there were 112,000 ne-
groes employed by the Department and that the Post Office
has more negroes in white-collar and supervisory positions
than any other department of the Government, "In 1955, alone,
we upgraded more than 300' colored employees to supervisory
positions in post offices, throughout the country." he said.
He. gloated in the fact that negroes now hold positions of
power and responsibility in the Department. Many negroes
now boss White employees such as the General Foreman at
Seattle, Wash., first Senior Assistant Supt., in New York City,
the foreman assigned to floor work at Baltimore’s Main Post
Summerfield is negroizing the Post Office Department with
the resultant loss of efficiency and lowering the morale of
White workers. The Post Office goes deeper in the red each
year and now wants large postal increases. What a price to
pay for integration. At a recent civil service examination for
post office employment held in St. Louis, there were 38 ne-
groes and only 2 Whites. The 2 Whites became so disgusted
they refused to even take the examination and walked out.
Postal service is declining and deficits are mounting, but
Summerfield and the Administration are happy because negroes
are getting special treatment and privileges. What matter how
the Post Office is run as long as Ike gets the negro vote.
Cora Brown of Detroit, a negress, is sworn in as Special
Assistant General Council of the U. S. Post Office Depart-
ment by General Council Abe McGregor while Postmaster
General Arthur Summerfield looks on approvingly. Cora was
formerly a Democratic State Senator, but quit the Democratic
Party when she failed to be nominated for Congress and be-
came a Republican.

Whites Fleeing City
The effect of compulsory integration has
been a mass exodus of Whites from the City.
In the past 7 years, New York's White popu-
lation has declined by 720,000 while negroes
and Puerto Ricans have increaised by 615,000.
Percentage-wise, non-Whites have increased
from 12^ to nearly 21%. Charles Abrams,
Chairman of the State Commission Against
Discrimination predicted: ''For some years
to come, we can expect that the non-White
population will continue to grow rapidly,
both through a continuing high birth rate and
a continuing in-migration." In the meantime
New York City is practically bankrupt and
Mayor Wagner is desperately appealing to the
State Legislature to grant the City additional
operating funds. The prospects for New York,
called the richest city in the world, look
very dim indeed. What a price it is paying
for racial integration!

A source has advised that a member of the Communist
Party (CP) of Missouri attended a conference in Chicago,
Illinois, on December 28-29, 1963, for the purpose of initiating
a "call"' to the new youth organization, and plan for a
founding convention to be held in June, 1964. The expenses
for this trip, as well as the expenses of two delegates to
the founding convention of the W.E.B. DuBois Clubs of America
(DCA) held from June 19th to 21st, 1964, at 150 Golden Gate
Avenue in San Francisco, California, were paid for by the
CP of Missouri .
A second source has advised that the organizing
of a DCA Club in St, Louis was done at the direction and
financial assistance of the CP of Missouri. MIKE ZAGARELL,
National CP Youth Director; MORTIMER DANIEL RUBIN, National
CP Organizational Director; and CLAUDE LIGHTFOOT, member of
the National CP Committee, while in St, Louis have met with
members of the St, Louis DCA Club to discuss its status and
The second source also advised that approximately
twelve young people met on March 7, 1965, in St. Louis, and
organized the DCA St. Louis Club. They elected officers and
executed an application for a charter and membership in the
National DCA. Two of the elected officers of the St. Louis
Club are members of the CP of Missouri.
Since its inception, the St. Louis Club DCA has
been under the complete influence, domination and control
of the Missouri CP.
W.E.B. PU BO IS CI^UBS OF AMERICA
) A source has advised that on October 26-27, 1963,
a conference of members of the Communist Party (CP) , including
National Functionaries, met in Chicago, Illinois, for- the
purpose of setting in motion forces for the establishment of
a new national Marxist oriented youth organization which would
hunt for the most peaceful transition to socialism. The
delegates to this meeting were cautioned against the germ of
anti-Soviet and anti-CP ideologies. These delegates were also
told that it would be reasonable to assume that the young
socialists attracted into this new organization would eventually
pass into the CP itself.
A second conference of over 20 persons met in
Chicago on December 28-29, 1963 for the purpose of initiating
a "call" to the new youth organization and planning for a
founding convention to be held. in June, 1964.
A second source has advised tl^at the founding con-
vention for the new youth organization was held from June 19-21,
1964 at 150 Golden Gate Avenue, San Francisco, California, at
lyhich time the name W.E.B. DU BOIS CLUBS OF AMERICA was
adopted. Approximately 500 delegates from throughout the
United States attended this convention. The aims of this
organization, as set forth in the preamble to the constitution,
are, "It is our belief that this nation can best solve its
problems in an atmosphere of peaceful co-existence, complete
disarmament and true freedom for all peoples of the world,
and that these solutions will be reached mainly through the
united efforts of all democratic elements in our country,
composed essentially of the working people allied in the
unity of Negroes and other minorities with whites. We further
fully recognize that the greatest threat to American democracy
comes from the racist and right wing forces in coalition with
the most reactionary sections of the economic power structure,
using the tool of anti-communism to divide and destroy the
unified struggle of the working people. As young people in
the forces struggling for democracy, we shall actively strive
to defeat these reactionary and neo-fascist elements and to
achieve complete freedom and democracy for all Americans,
thus enabling each individual to freely choose and build the
society he would v/ish to live in. Through these struggles
we feel the American people will realize the viability of
the socialist alternatives "
Appendix , (Cont ' d)
V/,E.Bs DuBois Clubs of America
The constitution further states that this new
organization shall be a membership organization open to
individuals, or if five or more people so desire, a chaptei’ can
be fonned which shall in turn be guided by the policies and
principles of the parent organization.
As of October, 1965, the headquarters of the DCA was
located at 954 McAllister Street, San Francisco, California.
Over the Labor Day weekend, 1965, the DCA held a
conference in Chicago, Illinois. According to a third source,
a nev/ slate of national officers was elected at this conference,
which included Chairman Hugh Sterling Fowler, II (who, according
to the third source, attended a CP cadre encampment held at
Camp Midvale, New Jersey, in June, 1965, and following his
election as Chairman of the DCA, attended another national
CP cadre youth conference held on September 9-12, 1965, on a
farm located in Northern Indiana, according to a fourth source);
Director of Publicity Carl Ellenger Bloice (who was elected to
the San Francisco County Committee CP in April, 1964, according
to a fifth source); Educational Director Matthew "Dynamite"

Representative on the Northern California CP District Board,
according to a sixth source) ; Organizational Secretary

met in June, 1965, with the District Staff of the Illinois CP
to discuss the proposed DCA Midwest Summer Project) , and

I, ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE
On January 14, 1966, SL T-1 advised that the headquarters
of the St. Louis Metropolitan Area Citizens' Council (SLMACC), is
Post Office Box 9683, Kirkwood, Missouri; that the SLMACC does
not have a residence headquarters as meetings when called are held
in rented locations.
II. ORIGIN AND FORMATION INFORMATION
On September 29 , 1964 , SL T-2 furnished a copy of a form
letter addressed, '’Dear Patriot" and signed, "Organization Committee...
St. Louis Metropolitan Area Citizens* Council, John H. Sutherland
Temporary Chairman; Mary G. Burns Temporary Secretary", which were
mailed to residents of the St. Louis metropolitan area. They bore
the letterhead "St. Louis Metropolitan Area Citizens' Council
Orga.nization Committee, St. Louis, Missouri." The letter announced
that a group of local citizens had been quietly meeting together
to explore what had happened to the personal liberties previously
taken fur granted and all agreed that "we are deep in the throes
of minority rule": that forgotten men got that way by failing to
heed the admonition of the Great Seal of Missouri, "United we
stand, divided we fall." The letter stated that the best way to
regain majority rule waste have one strong locally autonomous organization
built along non-partisan lines and geared to make the local and
national politicians listen; that this was the plan of the Citizens^
Councils of America, and that it was proving its effectiveness in
ccmmlinities across the country. The letter announced that an
organizational meeting would be held on October 10, 1964, in the
hall of the Electrical Workers, Local #1, 5850 Elizabeth Avenue,
St. Louis, Missouri, at 8:00 PM, at which time guest speakers would
be JOSEPH MC DOWELL MITCHELL, Field Director for the Citizens*
Councils of Maryland, Washington, D. C. , and Virginia; and LOUIS W.
HOLLIS, Executive Director, Citizens* Councils of America. The
letter had attached to it a tear-off portion which was to be mailed
to JOHN H. SUTHERLAND, Gravois Station, Post Office Box C, St. LOUls,
Missouri, on which the recipient was to indicate whether or not he

would be present and the names of any friends that v/ouid accompany

of the U. S. - Supreme Court , farm subsidies, and attacked the- Peace
'Corps . The other speaker was Dr „ MEDFORD EVANS \ .Consultant,, Citizens

0.?5 December 9. 1964, SL T-'l advised that 'an brgsjiizatipnal
meeting of the SLMACG .was held at 8:00 'PM on December 4 , 1964 , at ' '
the American Legion Ball , 7800 Olive Street -Road., - St, . Louis', ' Missouri., *2.
at 'which time the speaker was THURMAN SENSING, Executive Vice President
Southern States' Industrial Council, Nashville , Tennes.see . who read, a
speech on .racism that he wrote in 195'?.
The May 1, 1965, issue of the.."St.- Louis PGst“Di:?patc.h".
newspaper reported that the SLMACC had sponsored an organising
.'meeting held on April 30, 1965 , at the American -Legion Hall, Post 4.00,
Highway .141 and Gravois Road, Fenton , Missouri , at which LESTER ..MADDOX,
Atlanta, Georgia, segregat ionist who owned the Pickrick . Restaurant in
Atlanta, Georgia, was the principal speaker.
On May 4,. 1965, SL T-1 adv'ised that the .SL?LACC contemplated
circulating a petition to collect signatiire.s urging the Missouri
Legislature not to repeal the law prohibiting, intermarriage between .
whites and Negroes . Informant stated that the members of this t
organization were fighting among themselves and that the' organization-
was lio-t growing.
SL T-4 advised that a re-orgaaizational meeting of
the SLMACC was scheduled to be held in September , 1965, but
that only two members attended the meeting; that it was there-
fore postponed and a meeting to reconstitute the SLMACC was'
held in November , 1965, to get thr group functioning again.
The September 19, 1965, issued of the "St. Louis Post-
Dispatch" newspaper reported an interview with Reverend WILLIAM C.
BARLOW conducted on September 18, 1965, which identified BARLOW
as the new president of the SLMACC, replacing JOHN H, SUTHERLAND
who had resigned because of his business commitments. BARLOW
stated that as the new president he planned to endeavor to form
chapters in the larger cities in Missouri ; that the SLMACC was
concerned over the trend toward anarchy in the United States
under the leadership of MARTIN LUTHER KING, head of the Southern
Christian Leadership Conference organization who BARLOW stated
was under the
of a Christian minister largely responsible
for the law breaking , looting and ravishing now prevalent in the
United States: that KINO and President LYNDON B. .. JOHNSON were
equally responsible for the Los Angeles , California, riots.
BARLOW said the Civil Rights agitation was largely Communist
inspired and praised the police in ail areas for the restraint
they have shown in the face of unbelievable provocation by Negro
mobs who cursed , spit upon and otherwise taunted, officers of the-
law. He stated that KING had proclaimed that his subjects would
not obey any laws they considered unjust ; that they would decide
for themselves what was good and what was bad; that President
JOHNSON is equally responsible for not telling KING differently
and then telling the American people that the laws of the. country
will be obeyed . BARLOW stated that the two principal objectives
of the SLMACC are States’ Rights and Racial Integrity; that the
Bible teaches racial separation but the United States courts now'
made up of politically appointed left wingers have ignored the
fact that they have violated the religious freedtm of millions
of Americans by forcing them into integrated situations.
On November 20 , 1965, SL 'IV3 advised that the' SLMACC
sponsored a meeting held at the St. Louis Baptist Temple , 4249
Gibson , St. Louis, Missouri , on November 20, 1965; that Sheriff
JA.MBS G. CLARK of Selma, Alabama, was the principal speaker and
that the meeting was attended by approxistiateiy 3 50 persons; that
LOUIS BOLLIS, Director of the Citizvens' Councils of America
was also present; that approx imate 1 y 175 demonstrators picketed
the meeting . Informant stated that CLARK ' charged that the Civil
Rights ' movement was inspired by Communists ‘and defended his
handling' of the Civil Rights movements in. Selma, Alabama.
FIVE '"POINT ACTION PROCRAM OF SLMACC
On December 16, 1964,’ SL T-4 advised that the SLMACC
distributed a leaflet setting out the following five-point action
”1. Prevent Ra.ce“Mj liing . Racial integrity is essential
to civil iziat ion and liberty. , The fate of the white
man (and woman) in the Congo and other new .African
nations is a stern warning'.
'''2. Avoid Violence, Experience has proved that where
iiitegr.ation occurs, violence becomes inevitable.
Peaceful. ope,ration ■ of segregated schools in the
South proves that social sep 3 >ration of the races
is be.st for ail concerned. -
”3, Mai.atair; and Restore Legal Segregation, .^.s growing,
disorder in Northern cities ,s.hows , if .segregation
brea.ks down, the social structure breaks down.
The Cojamunists hope to achieve disiretegration
through integratiorj in America'
■ ’ ’ T
’''4. Defend States* Eights. The states are the source
of all governmental power, local and Federal, Under
the Tenth Amendment , the states .have t.he reserved
power to decide questions of segregation, B'’ederal
usurpation of any such power is a vio3.atiori of the
*■'5, Gor.rect the Court and the Congress. Both the Supreme
Court ^Black Monday' decision and the Congressional
•'Civil Rights' Act are obviously un-CoRstitutionai ,
"based on false ’science' in mockery of the law.
If they stand, social segregation and laws against
intermarriage aredoomed. Such a prospect is
intolerable I The 'Black Monday* decision must
he reversed, the 'Civil Rights' Act repealed!"
The above leaflet also bore a caption,' "What is the
Citizens’ Council doing?”, and listed the following;
'*IT IS. . . . ' '
"Preserving Racial Segregation, and maintaining the, :■
the rights of states, local communities and individual
citizens to govern themselves, free from Federal tyrasiny
''Leading the Resistance Movement against, the .race-
mixers, and keeping advocates of racial strife out .of. many •”
"Protecting Our Sacred Heritage of Freedom from those
who would submit free .Americans to. thought control, and who.
constantly utilize the national comijranica.tioh.s media, as\ .
propaganda outlets in their , frenzied attempts to force
Americans into a totalitarian pattern of regimentation

BLMACC distributed a leaflet at organizational meetings captioned,
’*Wtiy Must St. Louis Metropolitan Area Organize?"', prepared by
the Organization Cominiittee , SLMACC, St. Louis, Missouri, which
set out the following questions and answers which it indicated

”A - For the past several years, local white 'moderates*
have attempted to appease the o.rganized colored agitation
groiips arid with tragic results I Their weii-iiitentloned
efforts have served only to whet the agitators' insatiable ■
appetites for power. Like Hitler and Khrushchev the
col'lectivists have announced their program. They will
settle for nothing less than total integration of every
residential area, every social gathering, and every privately-
owned busine.s.s enterprise! The white majority must act before
state coercion prevents us from doing sol

"Q *• Why organize a. Citizens* Council? Aren’t there
already too many organizations in St. Louis.
*'A Effectiveness of the Citizens' Council :moveraent
is shown by results throughout the nation. Communities
with strong Citizens’ Councils have maintained freedom of
choi.ce in racial matters., while unorganised cities have
surrendered supinely. During the past 10 years, the Citizens'
Councils have demonstrated that organization is the key to
victory! Our St. Louis Metropolitan Area Citizens* Council
will enable every dedicated white resident of this area to
unite effectively in a program for victory!
''*Q - Who will run the St. Louis Metropolitan Area
Citizens’ Council and set its policies?
- YOU will! Each local Council -- including ours
in St. Louis is completely autonomous. You and other
Bfs.embe.rs select the officers and director.s who plan our
program and determine our policies. This provides us v^ith
sound, responsible local leadership. In addition, through
our affiliation, with the Citizens' Councils of America., we .
have the valuable opportunity to consult with leaders through-
out the country, and with other’ local Citizens' Councils
whose problems are similar to ours.

laws, a.nd safeguard the right of each business to operate as its
owners see fit, in keeping with our American traditions.
”Q ” Wasn't our battle lost with passage of the so-called
Civil Rights Bill?
''A - No, indeed! The 'civil wrongs’ bill will be just as
unenforceable as prohibition. However, we must now become
better org;anized. On .July 3, 1964, -- the day it was signed
’’into law -■=■ the Citizens' Councils of America began a
nationwide campaign aimed at repealing the so-called
'Civil Rights' act. They pledged to continue and
intensify this effort, and to enlist the support of
white Americans in every section of our nation who
oppose this vicious and tyrannical legislation. Every
citizen is perfectly within his legal rights in working
to repeal the 'Civil Rights' act,

counseled together in the wake of the U.S, Supreme Court's
’Black Monday’ decision. For the first .time in American
history racial segregation had been outlawed by judicial
decree. The way of life regulating, the daily activities
of tens of millions of Americans , white and black, lay at
the mercy of power hungry Negro racists.
"These early organizers realised that the fundamental issue
was a struggle for power. It coiild be met only by bringing
together a winning combination of responsible and able leaders,
